Samsung say it doesn't matter which processor you have in your Galaxy S4, whilst their Knox software is delayed until June!

   Samsung's J K Shin has gone on the record saying that it shouldn't matter too much which version of the Samsung Galaxy S4 you end up in your pocket, because the likelihood is that you'll struggle to tell the difference in real world performance.

   In an interview with CNet Shin said that members of the general public and average consumers won't be able to notice nor will they be too bothered about the difference between the home-made Octa-core processor and Qualcomm's Snapdragon 600 processor, despite the benchmarks floating around which show how supremely powerful Samsung's Exynos 5 Octa is.

   Essentially Shin said that because of supply issues with Samsung's own chipset he had to, "use multiple different sources. It's a sourcing issue." That was why people in the USA and Europe will have the Snardragon processor which Samsung are confident will deliver comparable performance.

   It seems that Samsung still hasn't quite been able to meet demand with T-Mobile and Sprint saying that they will have to delay some orders and availability.

   Samsung also missed the mark with their Knox project, which is designed to beef up security on their handsets which was originally meant to have launched tomorrow with the Galaxy S4. However, it now seems as though the project has needed some extra testing from within the company and that's meant that carriers wouldn't have had enough time with it to launch it with the Galaxy S4. According to the New York Times' sources the feature will now launch in July as Samsung look to offer business users a compelling alternative to iPhones and Blackberry's in particular.
